About

Eric is a self-admitted geek, and never quite felt like he fit in.  Outcast all his life, he and his small circle of friends would prefer socializing online, playing video games, or going to midnight movie screenings than engage in socially deemed "normal" activities.  This ragtag bunch of misfits has long dreamt of making the pilgrimage to the pinnacle of all things geek: San Diego Comic-Con.  This year they're finally going to make it happen, but it's not going to be easy.  They are going to face crazy exes, a trigger-happy pilot with PTSD, a cult of anti-geek religious activists, and a whole first class section full of porn stars, all while on a malfunctioning plane that will crash if they don't overcome their differences and work together to survive.

"How can we do it so cheap?"

We're already halfway there! We have access to $20,000, but we need your help to fund the rest!    We have an excellent array of professional equipment that would make the most discerning industry professionals drool.  That’s the beauty of making a feature film while associated with Saddleback College's Cinema department.  We will also have access to the perfect location for our project: Air Hollywood.  What this means is we will be able to put the majority of the budget IN FRONT of the camera where it belongs. This will be an excellent learning experience for students, allowing hands-on access to a feature shoot, side-by-side with peers and working professionals.

We love this project, and we want to do the story justice by doing it right.  There are many iconic geek celebrities we would love to have in this film, so any money pledged over our goal will go toward enticing them to be involved in this project!  All of these goals vastly increase the production value of the movie.

Stretch Goal #1: $25,000 - If we reach $25,000 we will be able to guarantee one celebrity cameo in this film, and it will be epic!

Stretch Goal #2: $30,000 - $30,000 will ensure we can cast at least 2 celebrity cameos, thus increasing the epicness!

Stretch Goal #3: $40,000 - At $40,000 we can reach beyond the realm of cameos, and actually cast a celebrity in a supporting role!

Take a look at this sneak peek of our visual effects proof-of-concept reel!

 Professional Geeks!

David and Randy at San Diego Comic-Con with Geek Legacy

In 2011 at San Diego Comic-Con, Randy and David were producing a documentary entitled GEEK LEGACY.  That documentary transformed into a thriving geek news website hosting several weekly podcasts and reaching out to over 18,000 Twitter followers.  This is our target audience, our key demographic, and when it comes down to it, this is us.

The dedication of Executive Producer Charles Myers extends way beyond the confines of a classroom. He has worked on dozens of films ranging from micro-budget to massive studio pictures, and brings a lot of experience to the project.  He is responsible for elevating the level of the Saddleback College Cinema/TV/Radio Department to that of large private universities like USC. Simply amazing!

In today's political climate, it would be impossible to shoot in a real airplane, and it would be incredibly difficult to shoot in a working airport.  Air Hollywood is the solution, providing real mockups of commercial aircraft, and a standing airport terminal set that looks incredible! Talaat Captan, the head of Air Hollywood is graciously supporting this film by partnering with us for studio services and going a step further by helping ensure distribution of the finished film on the international market.

Technical Advantage!

We have all the necessary equipment at our fingertips.  We are shooting on the same cameras used to film the Hobbit trilogy!  If the Red EPIC is good enough for Peter Jackson, it's certainly good enough for Non-Stop to Comic-Con!

Risks and challenges

All films are inherently risky, so what's different about ours? Experience. This isn't our first rodeo. We know how to work on a budget, and making a quality end-product is the top priority. Randy Van Dyke and David Edmundson have lent their talents to countless feature films since their Writing/Directing debut PINK LEMONADE. That movie enjoyed success rarely seen by first time filmmakers; worldwide distribution. There's no reason why we can't do it again. This film is witty, smart, sexy, and fun! There is something in this movie for everyone!
